How does Solar Thermal Work?
Solar thermal panels are installed on your roof, in a position that will allow your system to operate at its highest potential – Those solar thermal panels contain cells made up of liquid, the liquid within those cells is heated by the energy they absorb from the sun. The solar thermal panels are just part of the system and connected to a hot water cylinder which allows heat to be transferred from those cells to your cylinder. Heat is gathered in your cylinder and then distributed by your boiler, thus giving you hot water and central heating.
